Is it or isn't?

There.is this "joke" that goes like this, "paalala sa mga pasaherong Pilipino, ang kumot ay hindi inuuwi".(reminders to all Filipino passengers, the blanket is not to be taken home). Do you or have you taken home something from the airlines you get ride into? Some airlines has blankets or earphones on each seats, not just in the business class but even in economy(cathay pacific). I know how cold it can be inside the aircraft and i have also some issue with my ears, it can be painful, and i am thankful that i can have both--blanket and earphone. But, are we allowed to take it home? Some may say yes, and assumed that it is included on the fare, though some.think of they just have those be just used inside the aircraft and not a "souvenir". So, what do you think? *P.S. I knew one who took one home and i told.her to return it. Hahaha.

It varies from airline to airline. Some airlines take a very dim view of you taking their cutlery, and the increasing use of metal scanners and x-ray machines at airport security makes it even more likely that airline cutlery will be detected, confiscated by the authorities, and returned to the airline. Blankets are more of a grey area - but who wants an artificial fibre blanket anyway? Cabin staff usually make announcements if they want the headphones to be returned.

I think this is ridiculous way of doing it all. All they can do is, collect a deposit for blankets, cutlery, and earphones. (Honestly...I would be afraid to use all the three...I stole an article in a newspaper, and a plastic spoon..it was kind of challenge to do it even as air hostess was around... but not something that I wished to steal for the sake of stealing...it can get boring in flights, right...so when the group is up to some tricks..why not). But essentially, a plastic spoon, and a the newspaper article. The last was the newspaper article.

I always travel abroad.Before the plane takes off, the flight stewards get back all stuffs. Do not believe on those saying can be brought stuffs plane owned under the broad lights on plane.Everything will be left on the seat, except if given as souvenirs like pairs of socks, candies or biscuits not consumed could be brought.

One airline I was on handed out a little bag with socks and other in flight goodies for us to keep. Other than that, there has been nothing to take. In hotels or resorts, I take the little bottles of stuff but my thinking is, it's there for me to use so it's OK to take if I don't use it. I've never stolen anything. One resort I stayed in had a pair of flip flops for guests to use. they wouldn't re-use these items and the staff said it was OK to take them.

good question, I think that unless it's obvious you can take it home or unless you are told that it is yours to take home it should be left on the plane. But it can also be hard if you regularly travel with one airline that allows you to take it with you and for whatever reason you use a different airline the person may not realize that they are suppose to not take it with them.
